Ahsoka's astro droid Edit

Pic 1 I just saw your edit to Toprawa's page regarding this pic. It actually says so in big letters above the droid, R7-A7. Dr.Kermit(The Doctor is in) 05:42, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

SourceEdit

It seems, here, you claim Peragus II is in the Kwymar sector. Got a source for that? :) --Darth tom 20px (Imperial Intelligence) 21:36, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Gidd Edit

Hey there. I'm just trying to clean up some redlinks and I noticed here that you were the one who added Gidd to the List of Jedi. The article for Gidd has been CSD'd twice, so I was wondering if you just added a link to what was then an existing article, or if Gidd was actually in LFC like some of the others you added as you mentioned in the edit summary. Any chance we can get at least a sourced stub going? Wildyoda 21:03, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Shiritoku Spur Edit

Hello, JustinGann. I see you added that the Shiritoku Spur is a hyperlane located in Wild Space, and that you've created "Shiritoku Way" as a redirect. It would seem to me that this information has to come from Geonosis and the Outer Rim Worlds. You've also added the Truce at Bakura Sourcebook to the Shiritoku Spur article, but I cannot find mention of it anywhere within there. Forgive me if I've missed it, but I cannot find confirmation of the Shiritoku either being in Wild Space or being a hyperlane. Can you perhaps tell me where, specifically, this comes from? Toprawa and Ralltiir 00:19, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Quarren Industrial League Edit

Hey there. I've been going through orphaned pages and trying to clean them out. In the process, I uncovered this little article that you created way back in October, 2005. It doesn't have any sources or appearances listed, so I figured I'd point it out to you since I assume you know where that came from. I tagged it with {{verify}}, so I wanted to let you know so that it could get fixed rather than deleted. You know, since I assume that coming from a contributor like you, it's genuine canon that just needs an appearance tacked on.

Also, if you don't mind, could you find someplace to link to it and get it off the orphaned list? :) Thanks! Wildyoda 23:49, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

PyxidisEdit

Hey there. Since you were so prompt in getting that last thing I mentioned fixed, thought I'd throw another one at you. You created the Pyxidis article, and it references the Cygnus system. Cygnus system, however, redirects to Book of Imperial Shuttle Plans: Cygnus Spaceworks. I was wondering if the source actually mentions the Cygnus system. If so, that would be a canon reference so we could make a real article for that, and in the process have a place to link to Pyxidis. If not, we should probably remove the link to the Cygnus system. I don't have the source, but let me know if I can help do anything here. Wildyoda 18:28, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Replying to this entry.
Right. I know all that about the non-canon nature of the Book of Imperial Shuttle Plans. But I was assuming that you might have gotten the information for your original version of the Pyxidis article from The Farlander Papers, since that is now listed as the source for the article. Was that where you got your information?

If the Farlander Papers doesn't reference Cygnus, we need to remove that information from the Pyxidis article. If it does, then we can change that redirect to a real article. But (while I'm being skeptical) if it doesn't reference Pyxidis, then we need to trash or redirect that article as well. It's not a question of any of this being ambiguous. It's a question of whether any of it was referenced anywhere other than a non-canon source. Wildyoda 03:15, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Redlink Edit

Hey, just wanted to bring to your attention that you created a redirect to a redlink. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/S9_heavy_power_droid Toprawa and Ralltiir 02:16, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Blocked Edit

Dialog-error You have been blocked from editing for two months for failing to source your uploads despite warning and endless opportunity to know better.

  • My mistake. I've unblocked you. Someone else removed the summary after your upload. Graestan(Talk) 14:28, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

"Unidentified" vs. "Unknown" Edit

The Manual of Style changed a while back: we use "Unidentified" in the titles for articles like Unidentified koala-like species now. Cheers, —Silly Dan (talk) 17:50, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Also, please remember to add sources/appearances to new creations (such as Unidentified koala-like species). It might be best to take more time with new creations so you don't overlook those kinds of things. On a separate note, I'm not sure "koala" is a suitable descriptor since they don't exist IU. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 17:53, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
  • I took the liberty of re-moving the article to a new title. "Phascolarctoid" suffers from the same problem that koala does: it's an OOU term that doesn't exist IU. My title isn't ideal, so any refinements would probably be good. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 18:17, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

UploadsEdit

Please, please, PLEASE categorize your WEG uploads by source according to the category structure here. I spent hours making sure every single image from every single WEG publication was categorized, and they were all perfect until your latest uploading spree. With the mess you've made of it, it's incredibly tempting to just paste your recent contribs list into a mass-delete form, since I don't feel I should be required to clean up after you. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 01:33, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Good job on categorizing your images! I too was working behind you to try and fill your blanks. Just one note, West End Games is NOT the "author" of the images from their books. The author is the artist who created the illustration, something that we cannot always identify. Gry Sarth 23:47, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
    • If it's not possible to identify the artist, leave the author field blank. On a side note, on some articles you included both a WEG illustration of an item and a WOTC cluttered frontal scheme of it. If the frontal view is cluttered by other items and doesn't really add anything that the illustration doesn't depict, the article can do without it. Gry Sarth 23:55, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
    • A useful tool for categorization is the "link suggest" tool. Make sure in your Preferences that you have "Do not show link suggest" unchecked, and when you start typing, it will suggest links to already existing articles and categories. Thus, when categorizing, say, "File:Herosroguesimpadjutant.JPG," by typing just [[Category:Images by Tim, you'd have found that we did indeed have a category for images by Tim Eldred (not "Tim Eldrid.") Hope that's helpful, and that all of these suggestions coming at you at once aren't overwhelming. jSarek 00:27, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Moving pages Edit

When you're moving pages, please remember to change the name/capitalization of all instances of the name, not just the bolded part, as you neglected to do here. There's also no reason for the "Tessellated" to remain capitalized in the article. Also, it's "binjinphant," not "ninjinphant" - like I said the other day, if you just take a little more time when you're editing, these kinds of errors would be less likely to happen. Lastly, image captions should start with a capital letter, like a sentence does. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 11:54, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

  • If you're using thumbnails, always insert a caption, too, please. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 17:27, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
  • <sigh> Gann, "sirenian" -- as in Unideintified sirenian -- suffers from the same problem as "koala-like" or "Phascolarctoid": it's an OOU term that doesn't exist in the Star Wars universe (and it's ORish, to boot). Also, that article should use {{conjecture}} anyway. And, to boot, if it's a conjectural title it shouldn't be named in the article as if it's the actual name. Ergo, "Unidentified sirenians were huge..." should be something like "These large, herbivorous creatures were" or somesuch (that would also go well with a more suitable title like Unidentified aquatic herbivore or somesuch). Also, when you create new articles, please at least have a look at them to see the occasional routine glaring errors, so that people don't have to clean up after you. Your contributions are certainly welcome, but if you'd just slow down and take your time when editing, most of these errors would not occur and your creations would not be so consistently sloppy. Please go back over your new creations and fix the usage of the conjectural title in the text, and the caption-less thumbnails. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 18:02, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
  • For a start, it looks bad, and sloppy. Secondly, uniformity and consistently is good. Thirdly, you don't have to put just what's in the title of the article - you can be innovative about it. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 22:24, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
  • And when you upload images, can you make sure they have their borders cropped out? Some, such as this one have some borders left in. --Eyrezer 22:29, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Gann, of the four things I asked you to do to that article, you did one. You didn't add the conjecture tag, change the conjectural title in the article's text, or caption the image. Furthermore, you managed to spell "aquatic" wrong. So, for the fourth time, slow down when editing, so you don't make so many silly mistakes. As I'm sure you can see, I'm getting tired of pointing out these sloppy, avoidable errors you keep making; you're not a new user, you're well established, you've been here longer than me, so you should be able to create articles that are not error-strewn and sloppy. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 23:03, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Please consider this an official warning. If you do not improve the quality of your edits (taking your time and doing the things Acky advised), there may be consequences. Thank you. Chack Jadson (Talk) 23:06, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Gann, you did it again. I don't know how you can expect to write a decent article if you don't even glance at the finished project, and if you did look at it, I don't know how you can not notice something that blatant. How many times do I have to ask you to slow down? And, you still haven't gone back over your creations and fixed the errors like I asked you to above. I get the impression you're sort of ignoring this section and hoping it'll go away, but it won't, unless you get your act together. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 17:59, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
  • It would be appreciated if you could fix the errors with {{conjecture}} and the use of conjectural titles in your recent creations, like I asked you almost a week ago, before moving on to other tasks. It would also be appreciated if you could give some sort of acknowledge to all these comments, so I know you're actually reading them. If you want me to explain something to you or whatever, that's fine, but please do not just ignore this. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 16:40, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
    • It's quite transparent that you're now just editing under your IP, Gann. That's a bit dishonest and underhanded, wouldn't you say? -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 17:15, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Link suggestEdit

  • I'm not entirely sure; now that you mention it, I think I've had a similar problem when uploading an image. However, it does pop up while EDITING an image, so you can fix it in a second pass if necessary. jSarek 10:09, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Sourcing Edit

JustinGann, it is imperative that you Source the contributions that you make to this site. When you leave behind unsourced information, often times it becomes impossible to determine where something comes from. You've been notified about this several times, and this is the third time that I've personally given you such a heads up. You have been contributing to this site since the beginning, and you're in the top 10 in editing, so you should really have this down by now. With due respect, it's only a testament to the tenure that you have that you've been afforded so many repeated warnings, so please consider this the final warning you will receive from me: If you do not source the contributions you make, actions may be taken. Thank you for your cooperation. Toprawa and Ralltiir 17:56, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Shredder batEdit

Great eye catching the shredder bat in Lords of the Expanse! --Eyrezer 08:06, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Loronar landing craft question Edit

A long time ago, you added "Loronar landing craft" to the list of Loronar Corporation products. Do you recall where such a vehicle appears? (Or were you referring to the landing sphere included as part of the SkyBlind reconnaissance ship?) Thanks, —Silly Dan (talk) 20:36, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Blocked Edit

Dialog-error You have been blocked from editing for one month. You were informed of your repeated errors and asked to fix them. You either half-heartedly made some changes or completely ignored me. You were told that if you did not go back and fix your numerous errors you would be blocked. You subsequently sneakily tried to sidestep the matter by editing anonymously. Now you're back, and you've made no attempts to comply. So I've blocked you accordingly. When you return, either talk to me about the errors or just fix them before moving onto other edits. Hiding from issues and hoping they go away does not work, as you've now discovered.. To contest this block, please contact the blocking administrator with the reason you believe the block is unjustified. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 13:22, September 17, 2009 (UTC)

check source on picture for The Last Sight Edit

It appears incredibly similar to the "Counter Puncher" a heavily modified Imperial Customs Frigate, made by Rendelli Stardrive.
